[ED: Hardcover], [PU: ROUTLEDGE CHAPMAN HALL], With close reference to a range of Shaw's texts - Fabian tracts to the plays and prefaces - Gareth Griffiths draws out the central theoretical messages of the master intellectual's epic engagement with politics. Shaw's intentions, his methods and the levels of abstraction of his thought are related by Griffiths both to his writings and to the dominant questions and movements of the day.Part One is an intellectual biography and an account of Shaw's key concerns and of his Fabianism. Part Two looks at areas approached by him as long-standing historical dramas that demanded immediate action, and includes a challenging exposition of his attitude to women in his writings, in society and in contemporary politics.Such a study as Gareth Griffith's is long overdue and the result has been worth waiting for: a masterly study, comprehensive, sensitive ... so well written as to be the Intelligent Socialist's Guide to Shaw.' - Bernard Crick, The New Statesman320 pages - 234 x 156 mmVersandfertig in über 4 Wochen, [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot

George Bernard Shaw was the master intellectual of British socialism and has been one of the most influential political commentators of the twentieth century. "Socialism and Superior Brains" provides a comprehensive critical account of his political ideas. Shaw assumed many roles as a thinker, including those of artist-philosopher, clowning prophet, and pamphleteer. This book explains the methods he employed, the levels of abstraction at which his thought operated, and the intentions which informed his epic engagement with ideas. Part One provides an intellectual biography, while at the same time analyzing Shaw's concerns in relation to his Fabianism, arguments for equality of income, and ideas on democracy and education. Part Two looks at those areas which Shaw approached as long-standing historical problems or dramas requiring immediate thought or action: sexual equality, the Irish question, war, fascism and Sovietism. This book is directed to the general reader as well as the specialist. It will be central reading for anyone seeking to understand Shaw's life, his literary and political writings, or the development of political thinking in this century.
